National Weather Service: Bright Light, Loud Sound over SE Michigan was ‘a Likely Meteor’ – WXYZ (ABC) News Detroit

Dash and doorbell cams have become the latest in astronomical tracking devices as a probable meteor stunned folks living around the lower Great Lakes shortly after 8 pm on Tuesday night. Additionally, astronomers at Bloomfield Hills, Michigan’s Cranbrook Institute of Science heard “crackling” noises characteristic of the bolide variety–this, according to CBS’ Peter Martinez in “Likely” Meteor Lights up Sky over Michigan, National Weather Service Says. The American Meteor Society’s website was overtaxed by over 200 reports within 2 1/2 hours of the incident. As of this writing, no claims of anything coming to earth have been made, although some people reported hearing an explosion. (WM)
